I recently upgraded to the Web Premium version of CS4. In
2004, I used pre-CS PS with ImageReady to create my website which
consists of 16 pages. I want to upgrade the site and make some
changes so I figured upgrading to new and possibly better (easier
to use) CS4 would be the ticket. Well I anxiously watched a few
online video tutorials assuming I would have a seamless effort with
the pages, links, nav button rollover states and everything set
previously. All I wanted to do was change out the bitmap text for
some vector text, resample and correct the clarity of some photos
and add a few graphics, maybe a few more photos, and change some
external links. Well, I've never used FW or DW and like I said I
thought it would be a snap. My problem is I cannot import my PSD
files into FW as I get the error message, "Could not open the file.
An internal error occurred." I've opened simple graphic PSD files
that were created for items on the pages, but it will not open the
full PSD page file. My Standard page width is 980 pixels and most
pages are not longer than 1000 pixels. One page is a hair over
2000. File sizes range from 7 Megs to 16 Megs. Is it the ImageReady
layers for the slices and button rollover scripts that are choking
it? I tried to open an HTML of the pages in FW and I got an error
not handled by Fireworks. Fireworks will not be able to Save or
removed and it wouldn't open.
I feel like I'm starting over here. The last thing I want to
do is break apart the page pieces and reassmble them in FW or DW.
Is that my only option, am I missing something, or is there a fix
in the works? I've read a lot of unhappy camper comments posted on
Firewroks CS4. Right now I'm thinking of just doing the edits on
one of my other machines that still has ImageReady and GoLive. Give
me some good news. Thanks in advance...
